Eggs, Beans, and Hot Sauce
Forrest prepared for us a Guatemalan feast of eggs, beans, homemade tortillas, and hot sauce the other night. Delicious and simple, a staple of the country. He showed us pictures from his recent trip with Engineers Without Borders. Guatemala is definitely on my list of places to visit-- the landscape looks so lush with tropical plants. I want to be a gringo!
Yesterday Jordan left for Colorado to visit his mother for a week. I buried the initial feelings of absence by running errands and meeting up with Bess for tea. Later, Kori and I got beers and talked about boys, friends, money, and what not-- it was wonderful.
It is so languid and warm today, I want to loaf in the hammock and watch the birds.
